Our office moves from London to Guildford

The relocation of our office from Hoxton, London to Guildford, Surrey has given us the opportunity to reconsider our position in the world of Architecture.

We are eager to work in the proximity or within the inspiring landscapes of Surrey Hills. This, in reverse, will enrich our perspective of London. We will be excited to return to London for every site visit and client meeting of our ongoing and new projects.

Padre Cruz Social Housing starts on site in Lisbon

Padre Cruz Social Housing is a sister project of the winning entry to the competition for the Zona de Alvenarias we won in 2013. This resulted from a commission from the Lisbon City Council to adapt the project to a new site within the Padre Cruz Neighbourhood in the northern fringes of the city of Lisbon.
